Kahnawake train station back on track


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) wishes to advise the community that a project to have a commuter train stop built at the Adirondack Junction has been reintroduced.

The project had originally been brought forth in 2009, at which time a survey was conducted that indicated support for such a project. However, it was not deemed a high enough priority and the project fell to the wayside.

“With the continuing works on the Mercier Bridge and other major infrastructure projects in the corridor between Kahnawà:ke and Montreal, traffic is going to only get worse for the next few years,” said Chief Carl Horn. “It’s time for our people to take advantage of the commuter train that already passes through our community.”

Chief & Council are unanimous is their support to reintroduce the project. Preliminary work will get underway shortly, including creating a new survey to gauge community support for such a project. Meetings with the various agencies involved are also in the works. Chief Rhonda Kirby (Intergovernmental and Transport portfolios) and Community Infrastructure Portfolio Chief Arlene Jacobs will also be involved in the project.

“The train is a direct link to the city, with connections to Metro stations and the new Montreal hospital,” Chief Horn concluded. “The line ends at the Bell Center. You can’t get any more downtown than that.”
